Man off the streets and into a home of his own

Our client is a young man who has been street homeless for sometime.  He has now been offered a permanent place of his own, but obviously has nothing to his name in terms of furniture or white goods.  Our agents have applied to his local council for a welfare grant and they have supplied a fridge, kettle and a toaster.  A cooker and a washing machine have been applied to one grant for, and for a freezer to another grant.  This means he still needs a bed and a chair or sofa of some kind and we were asked to help with this.  We agreed to send him £100 so that he can access his local Emmamus to get both of these from them second hand.  Any left over money can be used to purchase some bedding.
